Way Back When...

Remember when you were celebrating the New Year?  Seems so long ago, doesn't it?!  If the first quarter is any indication...it's going to be busy year!

If you follow my blog, you know that I have been on a half square triangle kick this year.  My first project for the year was this quilt.  I blogged about it about it here.  

I finished quilting it a while ago and realized I never showed the finished piece.  So, here it is! 




I ended up quilting this one using 1/2" lines in an all over geometric design.  I sectioned off four areas and with my handy dandy hera marker, I carefully marked my lines.  Once marked the rest was a breeze!  Quilting went very fast, my lines lined up, my machine was a good girl and I was thrilled with the finished design!



The finished quilt is 56" x 81" with a crazy scrappy back and a pieced binding.  I ended up listing it in my Etsy Shop a couple weeks ago.  And much to my surprise it sold!   

My customer received it and loves it!  She messaged me a couple nights ago to tell me her and her daughter were snuggled underneath it watching a movie together!!  Hearing that made me smile...for many reasons.  One was, what she was doing with her daughter I was doing the exact thing with mine!  


Quilts are so much better when they are loved, used and shared!
